It's Sunday and what better time to catch up on the past week. Well...last week, Saturday, September 8 to be exact. I had the privilege to participate in Lip Service. What is LipService? Lip Service is an event hosted by Miami Book Fair and they select eight people to tell true stories about themselves. This last theme was "Craving with Consequences. " The title of my piece was "Busted".
I had an amazing time and couldn't done it without the help of Nicholas and Ester who were the amazing producers of this event. I've put a snippet of my story below. However, if you'd like more about my story follow me on Facebook at MullinsKE.
The house was exceptionally quiet that night, except for the squealing of the headboard and his heavy
breathing. Max was sweating. That was a turn off. I didn’t like Max’s sweating, I didn’t like doing it doggy style. The truth was I didn’t like Max. He didn’t fit the profile. He didn’t have curly hair. He wasn’t tall, didn’t have skin like honey, and he wasn’t muscular. Max had a big, block head and a cologne that made me sick. I thought maybe he was packing. So, I let Toni give him a try.
Toni was my alter ego. Toni was addicted to sex. She couldn’t ever get enough. From the time I was 8 until I was 10, I was molested by my mom’s boyfriend. After that, I never felt pretty or loved. When I was 14 years old, I had what they used to call a “nervous breakdown.” Nobody knew what was wrong with me. And I didn’t tell them. After high school, I joined the Navy. I wanted to get as far away as I could from Jacksonville, Florida. Then, the Navy stationed me right back in Jacksonville, Florida. I met my husband, Jake, when we were both in the Navy. We got married when I was 19 years old. Jake was a few years older than me. There was nothing wrong with Jake. But there was plenty wrong with me. That’s where Toni came in. Toni could do all the ugly shameful things, so I could be Kim. Now, Kim was 24 years old, confident, beautiful, and in control.
